Unveiling the UAE edition of Zoho Payroll

Meet Zoho Payroll for the UAE, Zoho's very own cloud payroll software built to make the payroll process refreshingly simple and smart. After simplifying payroll for thousands of businesses in India and the US, we're now making payroll easier for businesses in the UAE.


From an easy-to-use interface, to automatic calculations and compliance, Zoho Payroll's UAE edition is packed with everything you've always looked for in a payroll solution.

Automation to reduce errors and work faster

Once you complete your one-time setup, Zoho Payroll will automatically calculate your employees' gross salary, deductions, and net salary for every pay run.

And the automation doesn't just end there.

  1. Deduct employee contributions towards applicable pension schemes automatically.
  2. Pick your pay schedule and don't worry about pay day falling on a weekend or a holiday; the app will adjust your pay runs for the previous business day.
  3. Support your employees with loans in times of need, and deduct repayments automatically.
  4. Generate and send payslips instantly after every pay run.


Built-in compliance to keep your slate clean

Compliance with the UAE labour laws, such as Wage Protection System, Employee Pensions, and Gratuity, are built into the system so you can run a compliant payroll.

  1. Wage Protection System (WPS): Generate prefilled Salary Information File (SIF) files and process payroll payments effortlessly through WPS or your bank's website.
  2. Pension: Employ GCC nationals and manage their pensions with ease, as Zoho Payroll is compliant with GPSSA, ADRBPF, GOSI, SIO, PASI, PIFSS, and GRSIA.

  3. End of service benefits: Once you initiate the exit process for an expatriate, Gratuity is automatically calculated based on contract type, separation type, and free zones.

Integrations that bring your operations together

Zoho Payroll integrates with Zoho People, our HR software, to manage the people in your payroll seamlessly. Key information like employee details, attendance, overtime data, and Loss of Pay (LOP) reports from Zoho People will be automatically pulled into Zoho Payroll during every pay run.

Through Zoho Payroll's powerful integration with Zoho Books, our VAT-compliant accounting software, you can automate your entire payroll accounting cycle. Automatically record journal entries for each pay period and keep your books up to date.
